Overview

Kyoto Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, full bath, kitchen, living, sleeps 6

Sakara White Crane Machiya is a Kyoto 'machiya' townhouse with the styling and amenities you expect from Sakara, walking distance from Kyoto Subway Higashiyama Station. The location is exceptional; walking distance from the famous Chion-in temple, on a peaceful alleyway, only minutes from the subway line. There are two rooms on the second floor with designer western-style bedding as well as a living space on the first floor with an 80 cm wide sofa-bed. In addition, there is a traditional courtyard garden, bath, kitchenette, Wifi, and easy access to local restaurants. There are heaters/air conditioners with temperature control in each room to ensure your comfort year-round. In keeping with our theme, we offer 'Japanese style with western comfort' -- the doors are tall, living areas spacious, art and furnishings top-class.

The Sakara Shirakawa Machiya is a private self-contained house, rented to only one group at a time. It is a strictly non-smoking and 'shoes off' Japanese style building.

Great relaxing place for family holidays in Kyoto

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights with our 3 kids (9, 6 and 2 years old), and the house was just great: located in a nice quiet area, but also close to the places to visit (either just by foot or using the subway station 5 min away from the house). the house itself is very clean and comfortable, with all the equipment you may need to make yourself feel like at home (kitchen appliances, washing-drying machine....). Such relaxing time, even with small kids!...

I definitely would recommend this house for families.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, and we are very happy that you enjoyed staying in the house. We specifically designed this renovation so that it would be just right for a family group like yours. Please send your family and friends our way; Kyoto is a perfect place to travel with a family and this type of accommodation is ideal because it is safe, clean, and comfortable, with the space you need and the access to local transportation that is necessary. Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future. -M.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, and we are very happy that you were comfortable in the White Crane Machiya. We did our best to make a space that would be just right for groups like yours. The location on a quiet alleyway, just minutes from the Higashiyama subway station, is excellent, and there are so many good restaurants, shops, and temples within walking distance. We are happy that you chose to stay with Sakara, and it would be wonderful to host you or your family and friends again any time. -mgmt.

Very nice

Very nice place to stay. Quiet and nice neighbourhood. The kitchen is small, but we managed to cook food from the supermarked near by.

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting a review, and we are happy that you enjoyed your time in Kyoto. The kitchen was intentionally designed so that it is functional but not intrusive into the living space. We know that many travellers who have young children with them, like yourselves, want the convenience and space of a private home rental, but expect modern amenities and comfort. That was our goal in designing the White Crane Machiya rental. Thanks again, -mgmt.

Wonderful Stay...Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Sakara White Crane is the ideal location for people stopping by Kyoto or staying for a longer period of time. It is within walking distance to several great sites and the shopping district Gion. Mike was great and gives you your privacy, but also is available when needed. The townhouse is clean with new furniture and comfy bedding and the kitchen was handy (especially because you can walk to a grocery store). The townhouse is also set back in a quiet residential street with a lovely canal and a peaceful feel. I would recommend this townhouse to small groups or families. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jennifer, and we are happy that we could help you. Traveling with friends and family is always better when you have private rooms to yourself as well as a communal living space. We thought carefully about every detail when planning the most functional use of space, and our eight years of experience in the holiday rental business went into this house. We know that visitors to Japan want stylish interiors, a peaceful atmosphere, a good night's sleep, privacy, a kitchenette, and a clean, functional bath/shower with hot water and strong pressure, so we prioritised these features. -mgmt.
